The year was 1955. September 28 to be exact. Fifty five years ago. I am turning 55 tomorrow. I don't usually like to call attention to myself normally letting birthdays go by with only a mention from family. But today I am feeling nostalgic and just wanted to share some things and tidbits you don't know about me.
This of course is my baby pic. Born at the Mobile General Hospital. The hospital doesn't exist now but is now known as the University of South Alabama hospital. The building that housed the General hospital is now a Dept of Health bldg - A Historic Building.

Here at age 13 me on the right. Labor Day Celebration. Back in these days Labor day was all about the local unions. Mobile had many big plants with large unions.
Excerpt from the speech from Gov Wallace - my interest here is the tone of the speech and well this just sounds so silly to read it today. Check out the second paragraph here. Doesn't sound lawful at all.
This is 1972 in San Francisco with my father and my sweet little April on the way. Here I was 6 months along.
This is 1973 one month after April was born. Here I am at my mothers in Saraland Alabama (Mobile)
This is my first 5k run/walk. This is Sept 1995 at the Hurricane Run on Dauphin Island.
This is my last 5k in Saraland AL. Improved a good ten minutes. I wish I'd never stopped.
This is today. Many years older and wiser.
